About Curriculum & Instruction:

PCA/ACA recognizes the value of the teaching and learning of popular culture.  Our mission to promote the study of popular culture throughout the world of course includes the advancement and support of scholarship in the field.  PCA/ACA, as a pedagogical leader, encourages academic discourse and the sharing of resources for the development of popular culture departments, programs and courses.

The Curriculum and Instruction site will serve as an authority for those members seeking guidance as they build new programs or enhance existing ones, as well as improving and updating courses and materials. PCA/ACA hopes to provide the necessary information to educate our colleagues and administrators about the academic rigor of popular culture and its necessity in the liberal arts curriculum. The site will offer evidence of the merit and value of the discipline in the academy.

In the near future this will be a central online location where educators can search materials or similar curricula to reference or consult as they expand and enrich the field.  The PCA/ACA community of scholars will be encouraged to share current syllabi, reading lists and links as well as participate in discussions that further inter-disciplinary critical thinking and scholarly exchange.

The PCA/ACA Curriculum and Instruction site will provide general support for the field and be an evolving repository of creative and successful ideas and resources trending in the field to expand and improve upon instruction and teaching practices.
